Charlotte, NC - CMPD says multiple suspects are still on the run after shooting a young Charlotte mother inside her home during a home invasion.
Semantha Bunce was seriously injured after being shot during a home invasion Tuesday, according to Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department. Her infant child was home at the time and not injured in the shooting.
The 21-year-old mother lives on the 6400 block of Matlea Court. The suspects kicked in the front door shortly before 10 a.m., police said. After shooting Bunce, the suspects fled on foot.
Next door neighbor John Marshall says he feared for his life when one of the bullets fired came through his bedroom wall.
"Scared. I was so scared," Marshall said.
CMPD does not believe the possible suspects and the victim knew each other. Neighbors are now asking for more patrolling, saying they feel unsafe.
We dug up some crime stats that recently happened in the neighborhood. There was an armed robbery a month ago, along with a car that was stolen.
CMPD says they will increase police presence to make people feel safe for the time being.
Medical officials transported Bunce to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, where she was listed to have life threatening injuries.
We also learned the victim recently moved into her home with her husband and infant child.
Police are still searching for the suspects but at this time believe the suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call 704-432-TIPS.
